Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

after doing the make on the uw imap server, I am given these instructions to do to make it work:
3) Install the POP2 daemon (ipopd/ipop2d), the POP3 daemon (ipopd/ipop3d), and
the IMAP daemon (imapd/imapd) on a system directory of your choosing.
4) Update /etc/services to register the pop2 service on TCP port 109, the
pop3 service on TCP port 110, and the imap service on TCP port 143. Also
update Yellow Pages/NIS/NetInfo/etc. if appropriate on your system.
5) Update /etc/inetd.conf to invoke the POP2, POP3, and IMAP daemons on their
6) That's all!
What do I do to make these things happen. By this I mean, what directories do i put them in and what do I do to update inetd.conf (or xinetd on my mandrake 8.1 system) to make this get up and going?
yes. When I try to install the rpm of it, I get the need dependency error for lib.so.6(glibc 2.3) I have tried and tried to install this glibc2.3 rpm on my linux boxes forever and I have never been able to.
Anyone know any other suggestions? I really need this in a hurry...
Well I checked all that but I still cannot connect to the server at port 143 I still get connection refused. This happens even if I start it manually from the CLI. Anything else I should check to make sure this port is opened up?
